dc.description.abstract There’s arguably no more tangible or dangerous act of trespass than the illegal crossing of a country’s borders and in this regard, Houston, Texas, mere hours away from the United States – Mexico border, is the perfect setting for my collection of work. This thesis explores rampant socio-political-economic-religious-sexual-ideological border jumping. The poetry, fiction, and nonfiction pieces in this thesis feature accidental, purposeful, and seemingly unavoidable acts of trespass and transgression. In the process of researching and writing this thesis, the author completed Spanish-English translations of the late Mexican poet Jaime Sabines and implemented a wide range of linguistic code-switching.
